The Late Show with David Letterman is an award-winning CBS late night talk show hosted by David Letterman with band leader and sidekick Paul Shaffer. Letterman previously hosted Late Night with David Letterman on NBC from 1982 until 1993.
- On the September 23, 1993 show, as part of the "Dave's Record Collection" segment, David Letterman showed off Barney's Favorites Vol. 1, playing the song I Love You. When the final line played ("Won't you say you love me too?") was shortly after he puts the CD aside, he jokingly said "OK, I love you, Barney."
- In his Trick or Treat segment in 1993, one girl's costume was Barney "after he was hit by an 18-wheeler."
